NFL's Roger Goodell Praises Las Vegas Transformation

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, spoke at a Las Vegas Super Bowl LVIII Host Committee brunch in Tuesday and he praised the city’s shift in image in the last few years which has led them to land the league’s championship game.

Goodell also touched on other topics like the game’s global appeal in a 25-minute sit down with Las Vegas Raiders president Sandra Douglass Morgan that also included appearances by other sports executives from premier leagues such as the UFC, the NHL’s Golden Knights, the WNBA’s Aces, Formula 1 and the NBA.

Goodell addressed the crowd and said, “You really have become Sports Town USA. You really have, and that vision was set out, that vision was clear. We wanted to be a part of it, and I think when that happened, everything seemed to change and the stadium obviously is a key component of that. It’s one of the reasons we struggled in Oakland is being able to get a long-term stadium that would work for us. Great news is this is home for us, so we’re glad to be here.”

He added, “I’m going to credit this community because I think you’ve changed the city on a global basis. It is an extraordinary entertainment city and I think people see this city in a different way. Sports may be part of that, but we’re all part of, I think every one of the sports that are represented here today would say that you’ve changed that, you’ve changed that narrative, you’ve changed that image, you’ve changed that platform. And I think, I probably would not have said 10 years ago, that I would see myself sitting here for a Super Bowl. But I’m not surprised.”

When Douglass Morgan asked whether Las Vegas would be in a “rotation” for the Suoer Bowl, Goodell laughed.”We don’t have a rotation of Super Bowls,” he said, “but I have no doubt this is going to be a successful Super Bowl. We’ll be back here a lot for Super Bowls.”

Instagram Head Adam Mosseri Says, “Threads Is Not Going To Amplify News”  

New Instagram app ‘threads’ are not prepared to challenge Elon Musk’s X if statements made by Adam Mosseri recently hold. Instagram head Adam further stated that the company didn’t intend to ‘amplify’ news on this platform. Users can also delete the Instagram account if they don't prefer the "Threads" concept.Although his position is not that unsure, it is discourteous if someone is looking to exit X in favor of benefits.https://twitter.com/safespace4space/status/1712165140127179201?s=20As per Meta’s information, social media platforms, like Facebook and Instagram, have had difficult relationships with news publishers over a few years. They have even had fights regarding publishing fake news, accusations, and clickbait of multiple political biases.  Meta-owned ‘X’ social media platform has the potential to pull X users who are unsatisfied with Musk’s changes. At an Instagram creator event held last week, Mosseri expressed his statement, “We want to empower creators in general. We try not to slant too hard into the news. We’re not anti-news.”https://twitter.com/ians_india/status/1712348108120604902?s=20While it is reasonable to say that Threads might be too new to have this solid approach to handling modern news. The requirement for X alternatives has become more popular in increasing the number of misinformation. Regarding additions, Mosseri is incorrect that Threads is not getting any news. Recently, the company has deleted many news-related search terms, such as ‘covid,’' the Washington Post,’ and so many others.Keep Reading:YouTube Ends Premium Lite Plans After 2 Year Trial Period!
